Fly fishing is good for kids

Hello all, I wanted to introduce myself and add a little something to the topic of kids and nature that perhaps isn't quite so "mainstream".  I'm an avid fly fisherman and and published author of a series of children's books that use fly fishing as a backdrop to tell a series of edu-taining stories.  The central character is Olive, the woolly bugger. What, you ask, is a woolly bugger? Glad you asked. My books in a nutshell: Olive…See More

Bio
I'm author and illustrator of a series of children's fly fishing books starring Olive, the woolly bugger. While the books are certainly related to fly fishing, there's much more to the stories than just fishing: important life lessons about accepting others and perseverance. The books promote conservation minded fishing in hopes of getting youngsters interested in going fishing, which gets them outdoors and enjoying/learning about nature. Fishing is the #1 Gateway Activity according to the Outdoor Foundation, leading kids to other outdoor pursuits. I hope my books can fuel an interest in all things outdoor-related, whether the child hails from a fishing family or not.
